1966-1972 FORD Zephyr/Zodiac MkIV specifications

1966-1972 FORD Zephyr/Zodiac MkIV specifications Classic and Performance Car

The Zephyr and Zodiac range had grown consistently with every new reincarnation but, for the MkIV, things just went over the top. With their enormously long bonnets and short, stubby ends, the 1966-72 range looked like aircraft carriers on wheels... and handled in a similar way. V-configuration engines were featured throughout; the Zephyr 4 had a 1996cc V4, the Zephyr 6 had a 2495cc V6 and the meaty Zodiac weighed in with a 2994cc V6. Top of the range was the Jaguar wannabe Executive model, loaded with occupant-pampering goodies and gadgets.
